360Heros recently sponsored the 2015 Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival and provided workshops on virtual reality at the gathering of 650+ media and conservation stakeholders.
JHWFF is dedicated to promoting public awareness and stewardship of wildlife and wildlife habitat through the innovative use of media. Virtual reality was the talk of this year’s festival and 360Heros was on-hand to demonstrate the world’s latest VR tech and serve as a resource for the content creators gathered at the festival.
“It’s fascinating to see how filmmakers are grabbing our gear and starting to explore this new medium of 360 video creation,” Matt Shiels, 360Heros video shooter, editor and trainer, said. “The JHWFF was a perfect example of how VR experiences can bring your audience closer than ever to places, people and creatures who deserve more of our attention.”

“Our team had a great time at JHWFF and we met a lot of talented professionals excited to start using 360 video to tell their stories and share their passion for conservation,” Mike Kintner, 360Heros founder and CEO said. “JHWFF is an amazing organization and we hope to work with their team again in the future.”
